Resource Centers

The five Resource Centers are located around Polk County and serve the residents in those communities. Each center hosts various special events during the year and can be rented out for private meetings and other functions.

Your rental will require Polk County to be listed as an additional insured if you are renting an athletic field or using any vendors at a pavilion or an arena (inflatable bounce house, pony rides, food vendors, etc.). If your rental requires insurance, you may find your own insurance company, or use  OneBeacon Insurance Group.
